PATIENT CONFIDENTIALITY AT RECEPTION

To improve patient confidentiality we have recently purchased a rope barrier and respectfully ask patients to stand back behind the barrier until the person in front of you has been dealt with by reception staff.

ACCESS TARGETS

It is our aim to see all patient's within 48 hours.  To help us acheive this target reception staff will ask you for a short reason for your appointment.  This information will enable us to prioritise our day. If you are not comfortable to provide this information you will not be forced.

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
